Invocation Spells - The Flame of Hate CD
INVOCATION SPELLS (Chile) - The Flame of Hate CD (2016). Behold the highly anticipated third album, "The Flame of Hate" The proceedings burst into being immediately, igniting a sulfurous conflagration from the first few notes. Indeed, this is very much the INVOCATION SPELLS the Metal underground has quickly come to worship: harsh, hammering Black-Thrash imbued with that ancient filth 'n' fury that can only come from South America, and specifically the duo's cult homeland of Chile. But as the album evolves, often at a breakneck pace, it becomes poignantly apparent that INVOCATION SPELLS have advanced as songwriters.
The recording across The Flame of Hate locates that elusive middle-ground between fuck-off raw and clear/cutting, with each incensed-yet-impassioned note ringing out through the humid haze before mangling the mind with quintessentially Chilean diabolism. At eight compact songs, the album wastes no time and demands repeat ignition, each glowing ember lighting the way to absolute possession. The Flame of Hate burns to the touch, and INVOCATION SPELLS dare you to take this torch! **originally published on hellsheadbangers.com** Hells Headbangers – HELLS 200
